A good warrior is never violent.
A good fighter is never offensive.
A great victor defeats his opponent.
but not by challenging him.
A great commander is humble.
This is called the power of non-contention.
This is also called making use of the effort of others.
To follow this is to follow the pattern
of the subtle law of the universe.
